  2. Enter the primary taxpayer's Social Security number.

  9. If filing electronically, mail your SC1040-V with payment only. Do not mail a copy of your return.

As an incentive for using an electronic filing method, you will be given until May 1, 2014 to submit the return and full payment of taxes and still avoid interest and penalties. Failure to file and pay the tax due by May 1, 2014 will result in penalties and interest from April 15, 2014 until the return is filed and the tax is paid.

Make check payable to SCDOR and enter the Social Security number(s) and "2013 SC1040-V" in the memo section of the check. Include your SC1040-V and payment in the envelope. Coupon must accompany payment. Do not staple the check to the coupon. Do not fold coupon or check. Only use an original coupon. Do not send a photocopy.
